Hurst caught four of eight targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 32-6 loss to the Eagles.

Hurst posted a similar stat line to rookie fourth overall pick Kyle Pitts, despite significantly less volume, as Pitts finished with four catches for 31 yards on eight targets in his NFL debut. Atlanta frequently employed two tight ends in the formation, as both Hurst (43 of 72) and Pitts (49 of 72) were on the field for at least 60 percent of the team's offensive snaps, suggesting there's a role for both guys in the offense moving forward.
